Sorry for no column last week, I just didn’t have much to write about so I kept what little notes I had until this week.
I was glad to hear that the Carcassonne square dance event was such a success and that a large crowd attended.
The Letcher Area Homemakers met at Jeremiah Missionary Baptist Church last Tuesday. It was our first meeting since May. Everyone is usually too busy to attend meetings in June and July, so we start back in August. We missed the few who couldn’t make it to the meeting, but we still had a large group of ladies attending and plans were made for the upcoming months.
Doreen Calhoun wasn’t there due to Wendell’s recent health problems. Susan Ison took them to the hospital in Louisville, where her dad was to have surgery.
Susan stayed with Jason and Brooke Ison at Fort Knox while Wendell and Doreen were at the hospital. She enjoyed visiting with them and the grandsons.
Russell and Connie Blair have had their grandson Austin visiting for awhile. He has gotten so tall. When I saw him and Judy Lynn Adams at Letcher School, I couldn’t believe how he had grown since the last time I’d seen him.
Rodney and Geraldine Ison’s great-granddaughter Lea celebrated her second birthday at Ronald and Susan Ison’s home on Saturday. She is Corey and Tonya’s daughter.
Last Friday, Dad (Don Pridemore) had a appointment at the VA Clinic in Lexington. We made our usual stops afterward at Habitat Restore, where Jessie Banks Scott met us for a few minutes before she had to head off to her job, then we stopped at Golden Corral in Winchester for lunch and Goodwill there afterward, where I found some nice antique dishes.
This past weekend was meeting time for Blair Branch Church. Not many attended the Saturday evening service and business meeting, but a large crowd on Sunday, and well blessed services.
We met earlier in the week to make plans for the upcoming Indian Bottom Association meeting, for which Blair Branch Church will be the host church, making sure the building is clean, everyone gets parked okay, and that there’s plenty of seating and food for all who attend.
Dixon Memorial and Ivy Point churches will be helping as co-host churches.
It was good to see James and Nina Mae Caudill out to church on Sunday. James has been taking radiation treatments and hadn’t been able to be in public. Nina Mae recently lost a brotherin law in Indiana.
On Saturday, a household shower was held for Holly Madden and her fi- ancé, Jordan, at the Blackey Senior Citizens building. They received many nice gifts.
Holly’s great- grandmother Irene Dixon and grandmother Wilma Pridemore were able to attend, both in wheelchairs, but able to support Holly. Wilma is getting over knee replacement. Holly’s Mamaw Madden was there too. I’m sorry I don’t know Jordan’s family.
Glad to hear that Jean Adams, Sharon Cornett and Laramie Adams are all feeling better.
Don’t forget about the upcoming Isom Days Festival. Libby Smith was telling us at our Homemakers meeting that they still have food and craft booths available and the booth fee had been discounted if anyone is interested in having a booth.
On a last note, there is a thrift store at the old Calvary College Campus now. It is open Tuesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and they also have the old gymnasium open in the mornings for anyone who wants to come in a walk for exercise.
Also, Juanita Adams McCrarey and her daughter Deborah were in Jeremiah visiting recently. They stayed awhile with Ivan and Freda Adams, Coreen Pridemore, and I’m not sure if they had time to stop in at Dock Frazier’s or not.
